I was in The Dalles with my family running errands, and we were hungry, so we decided to go to Casa El Mirador. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the waitress sat us down at our table, handed us our menus she asked us what we wanted to drink. When she returned with our beverage’s she asked... More

Four words: Carne asada y mas. The mas is a chicken enchilada with mole sauce. The mole is intense. In a good way. There's also a buffet that looked and smelled really good, but I have no regrets with my choice. Good margaritas as well!

Food is wonderful, staff very friendly, everything is nice and clean.tables and booths available and for a crowd they have a special room for big groups. Restaurant is nicely decorated and they cater to all customers but they seem to cater to families with children. Staff sings Happy Birthday to you too, if it's your special day.

Casa has great food and the service is really good, but the food prices our through the roof in my opinion. Even the buffet which really does not have lots of options cost almost $20.00 a plate.

Thank you Casa El Mirador for letting us have our family Christmas at your restaurant. We had family from Yakima, Bend, Dufur and Portland meet up at your establishment and celebrate.

The Carnitas are excellent which is my way to tell a good Mexican restaurant. Although I have eaten here many times with family and friends. All the traditional Mexican dishes. Great service.

Wow, is all I have to say! Casa El Mirador is the Bomb. They acknowledge my birthday with a discount coupon every year. I am a loyal fan and that is one of the reasons why. Spectacular food and service is another reason! If you like to be treated to excellent service with fantastic food then this is just what... More

I'm from San Diego where excellent Mexican food is easy to find. If Casa el Mirador was located there, they wouldn't last long. But, for The Dalles, it's pretty good Mexican food. The Patron margaritas were average but you get a lot. Our food was also average. My wife had an uninspired, yet fresh-tasting, bean tostada. I had vegetable fajitas... More

My Wife and I eat here regularly and we have found it to always be very good. The service is always top notch and even when their parking lot is full they have room. I would recommend this as a go to place for lunch, dinner or a meeting as they have a big room for banquets.

Thank Fredsmith69
